During last night’s PlayStation showcase, there was a new trailer for Ghostwire: Tokyo, featuring bonkers gameplay.
The game is set in Tokyo, obviously, and monsters are overunning the streets—floating schoolchildren, Slendermen. Meanwhile, the hero’s face seems to be melting away, as he battles these creatures with a series of hand gestures.
Check out the trailer:
The description reads:
“Tokyo is overrun by deadly supernatural forces, perpetrated by a dangerous occultist known as Hannya, causing Tokyo’s population to vanish in an instant. Ally with a powerful spectral entity on their quest for vengeance and master a powerful arsenal of abilities to unravel the dark truth behind the disappearance as you FACE THE UNKNOWN in Ghostwire: Tokyo.”
According to a post on the PlayStation Blog, Ghostwire: Tokyo will use 3D audio and the DualSense controller. Apparently, it will “bring voices from the other side to the player, approximating a sort of ‘sixth sense.’”
Bethesda Unveiled the game during E3 2019. It looked bonkers even then. Anything that Shinji Mikami makes, however, is naturally worth playing. It seems to involve using hand gestures to battle against the demons in the streets. What’s more, it appears to involve some pretty cool traversal. At one point in the trailer, the hero zips up into the sky while battling a foe.
Bethesda Softworks hasn’t revealed a release date yet. According to that blog post, “Ghostwire: Tokyo arrives on PlayStation 5 in 2022.”
